Digital-subscriber-line providers added 1.38 million subscribers in the first quarter of 2005, compared with 1.19 million for cable-modem services, as the total high-speed-data universe grew to 35.8 million homes, according to Leichtman Research Group Inc.

"Deeply discounted introductory offers again drove a surge in broadband adoption in the first quarter of 2005," LRG president Bruce Leichtman said.

Cable now counts 21.1 million high-speed-data subscribers, versus 14.7 million for DSL.
